The app which can be accessed on both iOS and Android, according to the startup’s Chief Executive Officer, Femi Taiwo, will “help employers and entrepreneurs hire, manage and communicate with vetted talent in real-time.”

The startup which was launched in 2018, according to Disrupt Africa, is an alumnus of the Google for Startups Africa accelerator and a freelance marketplace that allows thousands of users to find and hire freelancers for quick tasks and short-term projects.

Terawork has users across Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, the UK, the US and Canada, and offers a simple end-to-end process that includes “payment escrow, effortless personalised search, access to a diverse and economically competitive pool of freelance talent, a task management system for work collaboration, and a post-work review system, all with 24/7 customer support,” according to its profile.

While commenting on the launch of the apps, Taiwo said they were a “game changer” for businesses that face challenges identifying people with the right skillsets, while also stressing that the on-the-go capability brought about by the mobile app increases the possibility of freelance users getting hired by local and global clients.

Egyptian food-tech startup, Bonbell, has secured $350,000 in an initial funding round through a Canadian angel investor for the App services development.

Bonbell, a food ordering technology startup, according to the Chief Business Officer of the company, Doaa Abdel-Hameed, is seeking to increase the number of restaurants it covers to 750 by the end of 2022 across Egypt and other North African country.

She added that the startup is negotiating with two other venture capital funds in Europe and the GCC to raise $10 million in seed funding by the end of the year.

“We aim to help restaurants in offering an easier food ordering experience to their customers, either through food delivery or reserving a table in the restaurant, as well as take away orders and also the special orders made by customers in their restaurants.

“We pursue a better experience for the Egyptian user in food ordering; we see a lot of potential and opportunities to do that through developing the App constantly based on the user reviews, and adding more restaurants in all of the Egyptian governorates,” Abdel-Hameed said on Thursday.

Abdel-Hameed emphasized that the Bonbell has, in the past six months, earned the trust of more than 12,000 customers who used the app in food ordering in all ways offered.
